Cutest Guy EVER!

Okay, I'm a bit biased, but there is no denying that he is a super adorable baby! So smiley...I love it!

(sorry for all the similar pics, but I just couldn't pick which to post)

 His pose here just cracks me up!  It's like he's trying to make a blanket-angel!

Uber Fun Playdate!

Both Delaney and Katie had a playdate yesterday.  Not sure how old one is when they stop using the word "playdate" when a friend comes over, but on that note, I digress.  Anyway.  Katie has a standing playdate with a friend, Cassandra, on Thursdays; two weeks here and two weeks there, alternating as such.  This week, I screwed up, thinking it was to be here, but Cassandra's mom was nice about allowing the switch.  We had a craft planned and it was a 1/2 day at school, so the neighbors would be home as would Delaney and her playdate.  I think Katie was excited to show-off her friend and have her over.  Thanks, Linda! ;)

Delaney had her first playdate. sad is that!  She's in first grade and is having her first playdate. Don't get me wrong, she has had friends over, but it's usually our friends' kids or the neighbors...not a friend from school.  So, Hailey came over yesterday for a playdate with Delaney. 

Both girls arrived shortly after lunch, around 1 and left around 4:30.  Let me tell you...those 3 1/2 hours went very fast!  And, both girls behaved SO well!  I was afraid that maybe one group would "steal" someone else and leave someone out, but that didn't seem to be the case.  There was no fighting, girls shared space and toys well, and eveyone seemed to have a good time.

The first hour was spent doing a craft project...paper Easter eggs decorated with colored rice.


 The finished projects (Top left to Bottom right): Cassandra's, Delaney's, Katie's, and Hailey's

Then Katie and Cassie went outside to play, while Delaney and Hailey hung out in the basement and played Wii for about an hour.

Then everyone was outside for the next hour.




Then around 4pm, we all went inside and the girls played in the basement (Rowena included) for the last half-hour or so.  They had SO much fun, but I definitely think it wiped them both out!

Happy St. Patrick's Day

I'm a big holiday lover!  Even the holidays I don't care for, I love dressing the kids up (i.e. Valentine's Day).  Well, I haven't been on the ball much this year, as we didn't have outfits for this year's Valentines Day or St. Patrick's Day, but we gave "green" our best shot...

My Bugga Boo

Charles, Charlie, Chuck, Chaz, Chuckwagon, Chuckles, Bugs, Bugga Boo, Boo Boo Baby...
This kid has so many nicknames!  Poor little guy.  Although, I think most of them are cute and love 'em.  His name is Charles, most call him Charlie.  To Uncle Wesley, he's Chuck.  To Uncle Joe, he's Chaz.  Daddy tends to call him Chuckwagon, but recently switched to Chuckles (which I absolutely adore).  I've been calling him Bugs or Bugga Boo, due to his large eyes.  And Rowe, the other day, was calling him Boo Boo Baby.

I hope we all grow out of many of these by the time you're in school...but until then, you're all of these! Sorry Little Guy!

Here are some recent and not so recent pics of My Bugga Boo...





So, he's almost four months old and these are the things that Charlie is doing...
  • smiling a lot
  • coo'ing/talking with us
  • loving his bouncy seat
  • tolerates tummy time for a short time
  • usually is pretty snotty/runny nose :(
  • if he cries, it's for one of three reasons:  hungry, wet, tired
  • poops about once a week
  • sleeps like a champ
  • quiet
  • happy
  • loved by his sisters
  • not close to rolling over at all
  • loves to be carried facing out (he reminds me a lot of Delaney in that he's quiet and loves to watch everything around him)

Soon he'll be starting rice cereal!  WHOA!  I am NOT ready for that.  I know it is so cliche, but it is so true...they grow up so fast!  I mean, Delaney is SEVEN and Katie is almost SIX!!!  Holy Wa!  He is our last, my baby, and I want him to stay like this a little bit longer.  Love you, Bugga Boo!

Day At The Park...Spring IS Coming!

YEA!  Today is so gorgeous out!  I love it.  I feel like we've been couped up for so long in this house, and to finally get out, get fresh air, and just play, it was awesome.  So...after Delaney and Katie got on the bus, we went inside and got a few things together and headed to the park.

It was wonderful.  Rowena had a blast, and didn't care that her butt got wet when she went down the slides.  And, as we walked home and she could see the house, she just began to say, "No home.  No home.  No inside.  Outside, Mommy."  I think Charlie enjoyed being outside too.  He just chilled in the stroller the whole time, and every time I walked up to him, he was kick those legs so fast and hard and smile huge!

Rowe is loving the garbage man and truck!  She couldn't play at all while she watched him go down the street to each house.  Although, whenever the truck lifts up the front bucket to dump into the back, she freaks out a little (due to the loud noise).  It's pretty funny to watch her...

She had SO much fun!!!
